Default trying to align shifting text boxes

my report has a number of columns and in 2 of them are a quantity of text
boxes stacked vertically on top of each other

in a perfect world, the data would stack INDEPENDANTLY in each column
(without aligning across the columns)
ex: COLUMN 1 COLUMN 2
textbox 1a texbox 2a
textbox 1a texbox 2b
textbox 1b texbox 2b
textbox 1c texbox 2c


not like this:
ex: COLUMN 1 COLUMN 2
textbox 1a texbox 2a
textbox 1a
textbox 1b texbox 2b
texbox 2b
textbox 1c texbox 2c

my question is 2:
1 - is the above formatting possible?
2 - (2) of my textboxes -(1) in column 1 and (1) in column 2
(neither are the first in the column
have the exact same top of box position, and the same height
(0")
yet the TB in col 2 is being forced to start in alignment
with the bottom of the TB in col 1
- any thoughts on why this is happening?

many thanks in advnce,
mark
